Life as a metaphor - Bush 41 goes skydiving on his 90th birthday. In addition to showing he stills kicks ass, 41 was free-falling as a statement about (a) Maliki's government in Iraq; (b) Obama's anti-terror 'strategy', or (c) the heirs to the House Republican leadership that scuttled him in '90.
BACK TO BUSINESS, or, ISN'T THIS SPECIAL: Iran sends their special forces to buttress Iraq. If the enemy of my enemy is my friend, and ISIS is being opposed by Assad of Syria as well as the Iranian mullahs, we have some unfamiliar allies. Does Assad still have to go? Hmm. Maybe if Assad gassed some ISIS strongholds... nahhh. OK, then, if Maliki is lined up with Iran is it time to impose sanctions on him?
We can count on 404 to sort this out.
